All of Sitegap’s ready made websites come fully loaded with plenty of royalty free images. Most of these images are paid for on royalty free stock photography sites such as Fotolia or Photoxpress. However, there are plenty of places you can get free images online to use on your websites. Here are five of the best royalty free image sites with free pictures that you can download.
Stock.xchng is a completely free stock photography website with a massive range of free images that you can download and use on your websites. You will need to register for a free account in order to download photos and you will also need to check the terms and conditions for each individual image before you download. This is because some images have termss and conditions attached to them such as a link to the photographer or attribution.
MorgueFile.com is another completely free stock photography site and you don’t even have to register to download the images. You can use these photographs for both commercial and non commercial use and there are no rights attached to them at all. The only downside to morguefile.com is that there isn’t a massive variety of photos. But it is worth taking a look to see if you can find that hidden gem.
Photogen.com has a small selection of really nice images that are sorted into handy categories for easy search. Photogen images are free for both personal and commercial use without any other restrictions apart from having to register to use the website. Photogen.com also has a sister site Texturegen.com with hundreds of completely free textures.
EveryStockPhoto.com is a little bit different to the other royalty free stock photography websites. It is more like a stock photography search engine. You can enter your keywords for a particular image and it will search all of the royalty free photo sites for the best ones. The benefit to this is you will find thousands of images from every stock photo website all in one place. However, every image has it’s own individual license depending on where it is from.
